Dear God, thank you for this new day thank you for all you’re doing in our lives and in the lives of our loved ones. Father God Help us to be patient and wait for you. Let us not become weary when things aren’t going the way we think they should go. Help us to stay strong and keep hope alive and keep doing our part and continue to trust and believe that all things work for the good of those who love the Lord.
Numbers 11:1-4 says, “Now the people complained about their hardships in the hearing of the Lord, and when he heard them his anger was aroused. Then fire from the Lord burned among them and consumed some of the outskirts of the camp. When the people cried out to Moses, he prayed to the Lord and the fire died down. So that place was called Taberah, because fire from the Lord had burned among them.”
“Philippians 2:14 tells us to “Do all things without grumbling or disputing, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world,.”
All of us grumble and complain sometimes. However, when we catch ourselves complaining, we may as well ask God to help us to shake it off, to help us see the situation positively and just keep it moving. A grumbler or complainer is someone who is unhappy with their worldly fate or position in life. Some people whine instead of taking responsibility for wrongdoing. Complaining about unfulfilled desires leads to fights and quarrels. Furthermore, if desires are not satisfied, envy and strife are the results
People are straight losing it over this next election coming up. Fear is obvious, hate is growing and the crime rate is not getting any lower. However, for those who have not lost their trust in God, this next election should not be a big issues. Even in the days of the exodus, the hardness of the Pharaohs heart help glorify the greatness of God. Remember Proverbs 21:1 says: The king’s heart is like a stream of water directed by the LORD; he guides it wherever he pleases. So let us not get it twisted, the Great and Lofty One, the Sovereign of all creation, the Master of all universes is watching. His eyes are pierced upon the wickedness going on. It’s just a matter of time before His wrath is unleashed. We should address our concerns about who’s making decisions in our government to God. Let us pray for the best person to be in office according to the will of God. In the name of Jesus, rebuke and pray against wicked men and women entering into office, then let God work His mighty works. Oh and if we do our research, then ask God who should we vote for, He will most definitely make a way for us to understand who to vote for. Why? Because God sees inside of hearts and minds and knows all things!
Hebrews 2:1-4 says: So we must listen very carefully to the truth we have heard, or we may drift away from it. For the message God delivered through angels has always stood firm, and every violation of the law and every act of disobedience was punished. So what makes us think we can escape if we ignore this great salvation that was first announced by the Lord Jesus himself and then delivered to us by those who heard him speak? And God confirmed the message by giving signs and wonders and various miracles and gifts of the Holy Spirit whenever he chose.
Brothers and sisters, these scriptures were warning to the Hebrew people of the dangers of drifting away from the Word of God…from God. Drifting is very dangerous in that often times we don’t even notice that we are actually drifting away. Some of us are in the fast lane moving faster every day and yes I’m sure that some days we all could use a few more hours to accomplish our affairs. However, drifting starts out very subtle… one stops studying the Bible, praying or going to church…actually it can start in various ways. People start to drift when there are rumors going on about someone in the church or someone whom offended him or her. The subtle drifting takes one into extreme trouble waters……When we are way out in in the deep waters it takes great effort to swim back. We need help getting back to shore.
Stop for a minute, then ask yourself, “Am I drifting?” If the answer is yes…then start swimming back now…Come back! Some of you may be asking how? How do I come back? Well, Peter, when he saw the strong wind and the waves, he was terrified and began to sink. “Save me, Lord!” he shouted. Shout unto the Lord and ask Him to save you from drifting farther away from Him. Say what David said in Psalm 69:1(NLT) …He said, “Save me, O God, for the floodwaters are up to my neck.”
Our words are powerful than those of the enemy for true believer are a part of God’s divine nature. A true believer will not be trapped into enticing words form the enemy. If we don’t want the devils word to conquer us we must pray that God order our steps.
Psalm 119:133 states:
Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.
David, a boy talk some junk to that 9 feet tall giant. Listen to David’s words before he killed the mighty giant that had cursed the armies of God over a month.
In verse 25-26 of chapter 17 it states: And the men of Israel said, Have ye seen this man that is come up? surely to defy Israel is he come up: and it shall be, that the man who killeth him, the king will enrich him with great riches, and will give him his daughter, and make his father’s house free in Israel.
And David spake to the men that stood by him, saying, What shall be done to the man that killeth this Philistine, and taketh away the reproach from Israel? for who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?
David called the giant uncircumcised …meaning that he was a man already cut off from God, so how could he possible win. You see David knew that with God on his side he could not lose.
In 2 Chronicles 32:7 and 8 It says:
Be strong and courageous be not afraid nor dismayed for the king of Assyria, nor for all the multitude that is with him: for there be more with us than with them.
With him is an arm of flesh; but with us is the Lord our God to help us and to fight our battles. …
Thou many troubles rise against us and appear greater and mightier than us, they will not prevail. 2 Timothy chapter 1 says “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and love and a sound mind.” Did you know that fear will send us to Hell?
In Revelations 21:7 it says the fearful and unbelievers will have their part in the Lake of fire. Fear comes from unbelief that God is whom He says he is.
Our greatest fears are death, uncertainties, change and poverty. If you fear change…do just that CHANGE…if you fear poverty…give! We must face our fears head on.
